#50: Fairest Lord Jesus!

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Fairest Lord Jesus! Ruler of all nature!

O Thou of God and man the Son!

Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,

Thou my soul’s glory, joy and crown!

2

Fair are the meadows, Fairer still the woodlands,

Robed in the blooming garb of spring:

Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,

Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

3

Fair is the sunshine, Fairer still the moonlight,

And all the twinkling starry host:

Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer

Than all the angels heav’n can boast.

4

Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations!

Son of God and Son of Man!

Glory and honor, Praise, adoration

Now and forevermore be Thing!
